Kickstarter Campaign: The Ultimate Everyday Carry Jacket

by on April 25th, 2016

Ultimate

As a fashionista geek I’m always coming up with clever ways to carry all of my devices into my purse and jacket but it’s never pretty or stylish. As a kid I always wanted Marty McFly’s jacket from Back to the Future 2, who doesn’t want a self-drying jacket?

Today I got an email about a new jacket that is on a Kickstarter campaign that may be the closest thing to Marty McFly’s Jacket. When I checked out the pictures I was like lil Wayne in the Samsung commercial…“WWWHHHHHHAAAATTTTTT?!”

Without Further Ado…

Introducing the Ultimate Everyday Carry Jacket named “The Joey!”Joey Jacket

If your mind isn’t blown yet the Joey also comes in two different fabrics, the Sturdy Waterproof Jacket or the Sweatshirt that both have similar features.Jacket 2

The first option is the Sturdy Waterproof Jacket which is a poly blend that is soft, sheds water, and also breathes. The material for the Sturdy Waterproof Jacket has been tested under two hours of water without leaking.

SweatshirtThe second option is for those that need to also stay warm and is called the Sweatshirt. The Sweatshirt has a cotton poly blend that is soft and keeps you warm. It also has polyester lined pockets to make them water resistant.

 

Though they have reached their goal of $30,000 they still have 16 days to go on their Kickstarter campaign. Below is their pledge rewards for the Joey campaign and to find out more information of this innovative jacket click here.

Review: BALLISTIC Jewel Series Cases

by on April 22nd, 2016

BALLISTIC 1I recently broke my mophie case for my iPhone 6S. To be fair I think it had one too many drops down the stairs. Since I’m clearly accident prone I needed a replacement case ASAP.

The good people at BALLISTIC sent me a replacement case that was rugged and also still pretty. The case style they sent me is called the Jewel Mirage which is part of the BALLISTIC Jewel Series. The BALLISTIC Jewel Mirage Case offers slim, sleek, pocketable design enhanced with a unique laser etched metal design.

Other features of the case are the BALLISTIC Corners and raised lips which provides protection against scratches, corner drops and surface shock. It also protects your smart phone for a drop of up to 6 feet high.

I only have had the case for a little under 2 weeks but I love how rugged but sexy it looks. It’s also not as bulky as you would think since you can drop it from up to 6 feet high. To be honest I’ve already dropped it a couple times and there has been no harm to my iPhone or the case so far.

The BALLISTIC Jewel cases are available on their site starting at $19.99 and they offer free standard ground shipping currently in the US.
